The Oxford English Dictionary defines an ‘intern’ as the following: Intern (noun) • a student or trainee who works, sometimes without pay, at a trade or occupation in order to gain work experience.
They’ve got it partially right. But here is how Social Media Delivered defines an ‘intern’:

- They don't mind making funny viral videos while wearing a silly hat
- Their attention to detail is only the beginning…
- Multi-tasking on six different things is second nature
- They can write for inside the box but at the same time think outside of it
- Researching brands runs in their blood
- Comfortable with being addicted to caffeine and some type of candy
- Sometimes they get so creative they scare themselves
- They sometimes doodle
- They enjoy wearing flip-flops to work
